Press Release: ACN Newswire
HONG KONG, Sept 20, 2020 - (ACN Newswire) - A Mitsubishi Chemical (MTLHY) technical expert revealed that the important innovations of Tesla's new battery are the positive and negative electrodes and the new electrolyte. Mitsubishi Chemical has perfectly matched the electrolyte technology for the new battery. This electrolyte mainly uses new solutes and functional additives, which can greatly improve battery performance. The technical expert said that the solvent in the new electrolyte is still supplied by the Chinese company Shida Shenghua, and the amount of dimethyl carbonate (DMC) in the solvent will be greatly increased. This Chinese company Shi Dashenghua is the sole supplier for this.
A Tesla battery expert said that a large amount of the solvent DMC dimethyl carbonate will be used in the electrolyte of the new battery produced by itself, and the addition ratio is as high as 70%, which is 6 times higher than before.
Beginning in 2017, Mitsubishi and Shida Shenghua have jointly developed a new type of solute. This product will soon be mass-produced, which can effectively increase battery cycle times and energy density.
